- The present study highlights the disjunct distribution of the moss Trachyphyllum borgenii (Renauld & Cardot) Broth. Trachyphyllum borgenii, was earlier known as an endemic to Madagascar, has recently been identified at Pachmarhi Biosphere Reserve (PBR), central India. The discovery of T. borgenii is a new record for Indian subcontinent with extended range of distribution from Madagascar and now it can be designated as a species with disjunct distribution instead of an endemic species.
